D-Lab's newest working group hopes to bring together women scholars from a wide range of disciplines to engage in work that uses quantitative/computational/digital data and analysis. The group provides a forum for discussions on pressing issues and questions central to quantitative data analysis, discussions on pedagogy, data collection and analysis demonstrations and academic talks as well as any issues or concerns. We seek to promote quantitative analysis for all who feel their work falls under this umbrella. 
The purpose of the group is twofold: one, to foster an interdisciplinary community and discussion about current practices by bringing together women scholars at UC Berkeley who are working on (or hope to work on) topics at the intersection of their discipline and quantitative analysis; and two, to provide a safe space for women scholars to share their work and experiences as well as learn new topics and methods. 
Please join us for WiN's inaugural meeting, Friday October 13th, 2017, 1pm, 371 Barrows. We will discuss the semester's schedule and goals and get to know one another. Refreshments will be served. If you have any questions, please contact Nora Broege (nbroege@berkeley.edu).
